The extent one should show humility


Is this Hadith Qudsi authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Allah has revealed to me, ‘You should show humility to the extent that neither one considers himself superior to others nor oppresses others.'”



Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Iyad ibn Himar (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2865)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
